- Plan a low-cost, low maintenance, but high fun date.
- Be yourself, but be your best self.
Most guys are not taught the important things in school – such as how to date a girl, or even to meet one and make her a girlfriend for that matter! :) Consider this then a crash course in the best ways on how to impress a girl and show her a good time.
Planning the Date
The first thing to keep in mind is to avoid setting up some fancy dinner or other expensive event, especially for the first date. Going into the date with the idea of impressing her with money or in some sense trying to “buy” her affection is a no win situation much of the time.
Instead, focus on a date that will be fun for the both of you while still allowing you to get to know each other better. And the cheaper, obviously, the better. I’d disqualify movies for a first date because you won’t get to talk to her that much. I might suggest a simple coffee date as a great ice breaker. It’s low maintenance and low cost, and it will be about you two getting to know each other.
Be Yourself – But Be Your Best Self
You don’t want to be fake – in the end, you want to be yourself.
However, you don’t want to take this advice too literally. This doesn’t mean do whatever you want because that’s “you.” It means being the best self you can be.
This means if there are parts of your personality or appearance that you or women don’t like, you should work hard to improve them.
This isn’t “changing” in a negative way, but rather in a positive way. Imagine that you are becoming the best version of yourself you can be, and then project that to the girl.
But Don’t Be a Doormat!
Perhaps the most important piece of advice on how to date a girl that I can give you is to not be a doormat.
Don’t think that doing whatever she wants and agreeing with everything she says will win her heart. It will probably just win scorn and pity.
So be nice and courteous, but don’t be afraid to be a man either – be who you are, nothing more, nothing less.
So get out there and start dating. Reading is one thing, but you really need to experience it in order to truly get better at the dating game.
Otherwise, good luck, and let me know how it goes!
